Republican Spokesman "We Have No Proof to Backup Claims About Obama"

This funny bit by the daily show illustrates what many have suspected about the Republican Regressives, namely that they just makes baseless accusations and hope they stick. Their modis operandi is making an outlandish accusation, the bigger the lie the better, and repeat it often enough until it becomes viewed as the truth.

Just for the record here is the definition of Socialism

Socialism is an economic system characterized by social ownership and/or control of the means of production and cooperative management of the economy, and a political philosophy advocating such a system.
 "Social ownership" may refer to any one of, or a combination of, the following: cooperative enterprises, common ownership, direct public ownership or autonomous state enterprises. There are many variations of socialism and as such there is no single definition encapsulating all of socialism. 
They differ in the type of social ownership they advocate, the degree to which they rely on markets versus planning, how management is to be organized within economic enterprises, and the role of the state in constructing socialism.

Bottom Line

Republicans would like to paint a picture that Progressives are Marxist, who by definition don't believe in private property. The truth of the matter is that there are few if any Progressives who wouldn't like to be successful, or who don't believe in a regulated form of free enterprise. This however doesn't mean our system should be stacked in favor of the wealthy through a means of manipulating the laws, tax system and buying political influence.
